The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life."
King James Bible
And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.
American Standard Version
And Jehovah said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thy hand; only spare his life.
Young's Literal Translation
And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, 'Lo, he is in thy hand; only his life take care of.'
Job 2:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But save his life - His body thou shalt have permission to afflict, but against his life thou shalt have no power; therefore take care of his life. The original, נפשו שמר naphsho shemor, may be translated, keep his soul; but the word also signifies life; yet in the hands of the destroyer the life of this holy man is placed! How astonishing is the economy of salvation! It is so managed, by the unlimited power and skill of God, that the grand adversary of souls becomes himself, by the order of God, the preserver of that which the evil of his nature incessantly prompts him to destroy!
